Like crafting the perfect dinner, getting the best and right ingredients in our skincare is a top priority and something we like to look closely at. Find out all about the vitamin c benefits for the skin and where you can find the best vitamin c serum for you. This way for glowing, radiant skin!


What does vitamin c do and what are the benefits?

It’s a holy grail ingredient that’s been around in the skincare industry for years and has many advocates to say you need this in your skincare routine that are worth listening to! Vitamin c brightens dull skin, helps fade age spots by inhabiting pigment formation and because it’s an antioxidant it helps to strengthen the skin against the damage UV light does to our skin. On top of this it helps boost the production of collagen and elastin in the skin, marking it as a great anti-aging ingredient and working wonders on the free radicals our skin is attacked with each day. Quite a long list for one ingredient, and no wonder it’s so well loved!

Where can I find vitamin c skincare products?

Now you know all the brilliant benefits of vitamin c you want to get your hands on some for yourself, and we wouldn’t blame you! At TEMPLESPA we combine science-led ingredients with Mediterranean botanicals, so you may be thinking we use freshly squeezed orange juice for our vitamin C but we turn to stable forms of vitamin c to help get the maximum benefits for your skin. Vitamin C oxidises quickly if not formulated or packaged in the correct way, keeping them stable and ensuring you get the most effective ingredient for your skin.


LET’S CONCENTRATE Skin Glowing Serum

The most common way you’ll find vitamin c in your skincare is in the form of a serum. Serums are highly concentrated blends of ingredients which have a targeted action, more often than not you’ll see ‘brightening serum’ or ‘targets dullness’ across vitamin c serums which’ll help indicate where to look!

Our vitamin c packed serum includes ascorbyl glucoside as our stable form of vitamin c and works in conjunction with alpha arbutin to enhance the ability to reduce age spots and blemishes for overall brighter, healthier skin. We’ve also added in sodium hyaluronate for a boost of hydration!


GLOWCOLIC Resurfacing Toner

A fabulous exfoliating and brightening toner that will of course have vitamin c featured! This clever toner uses AHAs of glycolic, mandelic and lactic acids to gently exfoliate away dead skin cells, and then Mediterranean fruit extracts of grape, apple, lemon and orange which are rich in vitamin c. The fusion of all these ingredients renew, nourish and brighten the skin. Try adding this vitamin c toner to your skincare routine twice a week and slowly build up to 3-4 times. 

MOST REVEALING Glowing Skin Oxygen Peel

And with any product that has the word glowing, it’s going to have vitamin c on the ingredients list! This smart mask turns from a cool orange gel to bubbles with just a touch of water, see as the mask fizzes and pops to gently exfoliate away dead skin cells and dull skin tone. We love to use this as an instant facial before a special occasion, or just because!

Like our vitamin c toner we’ve also combined AHAs with vitamin c to promote healthier looking skin that sings with radiance and feels soft and smooth to touch. While the mask fizzes away it helps to break down the bonds of old dead skin cells which are clinging onto your skin, while ingredients like vitamin from Mediterranean fruit extracts and sodium hyaluronate restore brightness and hydration to the skin.


PALM BALM Nourishing Hand Cream

Often we’ll see age spots first appear on our hands, because they’re an area exposed to the outside elements daily and the skin is thinner here so more prone to aging initially. We help reduce the appearance of age spots with a vitamin c hand cream like our PALM BALM.

Because of vitamin c’s antioxidant properties that tackle free radicals and the added benefits of fading age spots by inhibiting pigment formation, this makes it an essential ingredient for a hand cream. Alongside nourishing oils and other vitamins, PALM BALM keeps hands looking healthy, youthful and topped up with hydration!
